The sleigh was all packed, the reindeer were fed
but Santa still knelt by the side of his bed
'Dear Father,' he prayed, "Be with me tonight,
There's much work to do and my schedule is tight.
My sack will hold toys to grant all kid's wishes.
The supply will be endless like the loaves and the fishes.
I can do all these things, Lord, only through you.
I just need your blessing ,then it's easy to do.
I do this only to honor the birth of the one,
that was sent to redeem us, Your most Holy Son.
So to all of my friends, lest your glory I rob,
please, Lord, remind them who gave me this job."
I admit it I believe in Father Christmas, or at least in the spirit of Christmas which is what Father Christmas means to me. However, I do not think that he is the reason for Cristmas which is why this Kneeling Santa is one of my most favouite images this time of the year. For me it sums up what Christmas should be about with Father Christmas representing the comercial side taking second place to the religeous because when all is said and done without that side of it the holiday would not exist.
The image is from CowTown stamps,coloured with promarkers. The holly paper is from K&Co and the red script paper is from Craftwork cards. The sentiment and gems are from my stash.
